Mini Review on Monitoring of Drinking Water Quality in Karachi's Rural Areas
Mini Review: Mini Review on Drinking Water Quality
Due to population crisis and use of increasing number of artificial and un-natural components in our daily lives as well as in industry might result in toxic waste discharged leading to poor water quality. This in turn destroys lives and might end up in our rivers, therefore leading to monitoring water quality in the 21st century becoming more difficult. As per UN Sustainable Developments Goals (SDG) 6.3, the 2030 agenda includes a dedicated goal on water and sanitation that sets out to ensure availability for safe and clean drinking water for everyone and appropriate methods to improve water quality. It is shown in the paper to what measures and steps can be taken in order to avoid unhealthy water for drinking and domestic use. Further, an attempt has been made to present a summary of the ambient water quality of Gulistan e Johar, Karachi. Monitoring water quality aims to gather quantitative data on the physical, chemical and biological properties of water by statistical sampling. An evaluation and analyzation of Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KWSB) water with World Health Organization (WHO) standards is shown to conclude if it is safe for drinking purposes and consumption. This paper possesses water treatment methods along with its research problem. It further aims to review and propose for implementation of water quality objectives to ensure safe and clean drinking water. In the last section, a recommendation has been given to KW&SB for what steps should be taken to make the water safe for drinking purpose.
